Plenty o hearts to go around.

Hello friends,

  • The pastel shades
  • Mixing red checks with florals.  
  • The different shapes and sizes of  diecuts for the hearts.
  • The word stickers which are just perfect for the half banner
  • EK edge shaper gave a terrific look on the red check dp.
  • Polka dots will never be out of fashion !

Sweet Cupcake.

I think, with this card, I decided to distance myself from my comfort zone of  “PINK” and venture into very unknown territories namely loud dashing colors !! I have made a deliberate effort at using this loud pattern paper here becoz the sketch is one where one can really show off the pattern. Like I always say, clean and simple is what I enjoy the most. Ofcourse the experience was a real fun one.

Right from the time I was in school and when most of us gals used to exchange cards or tiny gifts, (sometimes even fancy erasers 🙂 I’ve  really never believed in waiting for one particular day to express my love and affection for my husband, best friend, sister or neighbour etc. We can leave a small mark of love with so many gestures, each day of the year. Hence I do not make specific Valentines card but affection, intimate and love cards, with short and crisp messages. Afterall who has the time to read paragraphs and essays !! (including my own husband 😦   )  Two lines to say exactly what I am feeling and when I am feeling it.

 The cupcake is stamped while the sentiment is digi stamp embellished with two brads and completed with a ribbon. Voila !!

Before you move on to viewing the card, I’d like to thank all of you’ll who visit me and leave so much love behind in form of your lovely heartfelt comments. Thank you so much for all the encouragement.

    Cute Mouse Birthday Wishes

     

    It was slightly difficult for me to work on what the two colors and card patterns would be. In the end, it is predominantly orange, purple and green.

    The digital mouse is super cute. Just love him carrying all those presents.

    The sketch is from : card patterns at :

    Baby Arrivals, Challenges

    Precious Child

    Its been quite some time since I made one of those baby cards that I enjoy making so much so much. Probably the most important period of a woman’s life. And nothing compares to what she feels when she holds those tiny feet in her hands for the very first time. But you all know that already any ways.

    So I thought a bright pink and blue in various shades would do some justice to the very cute tiny baby embellishments I have.

    The super cute sketch is from : skipping Stones at :

    Another fantastic sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday at : http://sketchfrenzyfriday.blogspot.com/2010/12/sff122410.html

    Here’s the sketch :

    I loved keeping this card straight and non chaotic. Lots of symmetry was complimented by those little single flowers placed sideways to add a little dimension. The buttons too were only to add alittle color similar to the ribbon colors. And here’s my card :
